Workshop on Second Guide Hall for OPAL
Next Phase of Expansion at the OPAL Reactor
16-18 April 2011, at ANSTO, Sydney, Australia
We are starting to think about the options for the OPAL Reactor, beyond the instruments located in the present Neutron Guide Hall.  These include possibilities for a second cold source, a hot source, positron science, fundamental neutron-based physics and the possibility doubling the present number of instruments, using purposed-designed and optimised guides in a second guide hall on the south side of the reactor.  The OPAL Reactor was designed from the outset to allow these possibilities, and one might anticipate that the case could be made to start on such expansion in this decade.
In order to flesh out more of the details, we are holding a 3-day workshop at the Bragg Institute, together with the Australian/New Zealand user community, interested state and overseas agencies and selected international experts. All interested parties are welcome to attend.
